ArtYard is currently recreating the original Chalkboard Chronicles project using the same vintage chalkboards from the original installation, and 12 guest artists, including InLiquid artist-members Colin Keefe and Jasmine Alleger.
The Chalkboard Chronicles is a documentary film about a curated art show, which occurred in 1997 in Soho, NYC. Artist Tom Judd assembled a team of established as well as up-and-coming artists. He created a game where the rules were very simple. Tom hung 3 chalkboards in the gallery front window of TZ Art at Grand and Wooster Streets. The entire show would be up for 4 weeks. Each week, 3 artists would show up and start work. They each got a chalkboard and some chalk. What they did with those materials was entirely up to them. Their work would stay up for a week. At the end of each week, Tom would erase the boards. The next morning, 3 new artists arrived and began the process anew.
Keefe and Alleger will be featured in week 4 of this project.
